Kristine´s work is characterized by her excitement of working hands-on with
the knitting machine in the studio – using materials as wool, cotton and metallic yarns in a wide range of different colour combinations. Her “strict” lines and simple forms allow her to focus on the material itself and experiment with texture and color tones. She seeks to create an sustainable collection of knitted pillows that people can slowly collect and use on a daily basis in their home.
Kristine makes all the samples and the final collection on her 4gg Universal industrial knitting machine in her own knitting studio at Nørrebro in Copenhagen. All the yarn is purchased from European suppliers and it´s important to Kristine that the production is as sustainable and transparent as possible.
